 Zukosky Weighs 5,

All Taken On A “Never Winter” Jig!

Long time Century member and club treasurer Paul Zukosky relied on a few of his favorite spots as well as his spot on gut instincts to bring in a limit totaling 18.68 pounds.  He spent his day pitching a black/blue Never Winter Jig and even culled some on a day that saw a launch-time temp around 24 degrees with a wind chill hovering around 20.  As always, “Zuk’s” spirits remained warm and he saw his wallet insulated to the tune of $340.00 for the win.  Congratulations Paul, that was one hard day’s work! 

Second Place went to Gary Martin with the only other limit of the day.  Gary’s 5 fish were caught on a wacky worm and weighed in at 13.11 pounds.  Gary took home $221.00 for 2nd and an additional $67.50 for his half of the “Heavy Boat” pot totaling $288.50.  Congratulations Gary, great showing! 

For the second consecutive tournament the 3rd place fisherman needed only one fish, a really nice fish, to secure both his finish in the money and the “Big Bass” prize for the day!  The honors this tournament belong to one of our newest members, Jay Stewart.  Jay weighed in a monster that tipped the scales at 9.18 pounds!  This distant American cousin to Lock Ness was caught using a Rattle Trap.  This fish was Jay’s first with the club and rumored to be his first during competition!  While the season is still young, Jay may have very well put away the competition for this year’s “Big Bass” competition.  Third Place won Jay an additional $127.00 and when combined with his “Big Bass” winnings of $135.00, Jay left for home with a payday totaling $262.00.  Awesome fish Jay!  What a day!!

Fourth Place and $94.00 was taken by none other than our reigning Angler of the Year, Jon Harshbarger. Jon weighed in two fish totaling 8.86 pounds to take Fourth Place and sealed the deal with no-boater Gary Martin for the day’s “Heavy Boat” pot.  Jon’s fish were lured to the scales by a red Rattle Trap.  Jon’s largest fish was a 7.44 pound beauty that helped him earn $94.00 for 4th and $67.50 for “Heavy Boat”.  This day’s work totaled a $161.50 day for Jon.  Congrats as always Jon!  

Fifth Place belongs to a man who is no stranger to being “in the money”, Robert Hargrove.  Robert used his “Chicken Rig” (who knew?) to bring in 4 fish weighing in at 6.93 pounds.  In this case, his faithful rig landed him $68 surely to be used on more “Chicken Rig” goodies! Way to go Robert! 

The first place “Out of the Money” Tackle Pack went to our Vice President and Tournament Director, Philip Webb.  “PW” used a jerk bait, rattletrap and craw worm to bring in his 3 fish for a total of 6.52 pounds.  Congrats Philip!   

The winner of this tourney’s free entry-fee drawing was Hameed Ghaffar.  Congrats Hameed!!
